5:00 in the morning
Gotta get outta bed
No snooze alarm warning
Chores hang over my head

Serve food that's organic
Sort clothes for the wash
Calm school-induced panic
Picking up, dropping off

If only I could go on strike
Just maybe they'd see what it's like, 'cause...

Got The Domestic Goddess Blues
Where's the raise, I've paid my dues
Don't feel appreciated
Staying home is over-rated
This Cinderella's not the least bit amused
Got The Domestic Goddess Blues

Serving a life sentence
With no chance for parole
Lost all independence
Two kids are in control

Why can't they peel a grape for me?
Or stop before I count to three? 'Cause...

Got The Domestic Goddess Blues
Where's the raise, I've paid my dues
Don't feel appreciated
Staying home is over-rated
This Cinderella's not the least bit amused
Got The Domestic Goddess Blues

Back when I worked, sure my boss was a jerk but the perks of the job were sublime
Now my clients live with me, they pout and dismiss me, what I'd give for a tall glass of wine

Got The Domestic Goddess Blues
Where's the raise, I've paid my dues
Don't feel appreciated
Staying home is over-rated
This Cinderella's not the least bit amused
Got The Domestic Goddess Blues

‘Cause it’s not till the end of the day, after I wash off their little cooties
At last I can finally enjoy my fun wifely duties

I’ve got the Domestic Goddess Blues
